Photographer's Note

Before every trip I look at the photos , here on TE, sand also in Google and I plan what wonderful shots I would make. Craig knows well how it is. But then many things ruin these plans. First, the weather. I wanted to make marvelous shots of Etretat cliffs at sunset, I went four kilometers one way in the right time but it was raining. I knew the place from where Monet painted, but it was useless. When the sky is just white, you can't do much. other even more horrible thing are the restoration works. You come to the place of your long years dreaming and it is covered with scaffolding :(. It was like this last year in Neuschwanstein. And smaller obstacles, like cars, trucks or herds of Asian tourists that everywhere must have the photos with them with the V sign. And still there is place for stupidity, as forgotten SD cards, uncharged batteries or camera setting from the other day.
As an illustration here is this photo from Chambord. I have known that on this side there is some water and one can have nice view of the castle with reflections. But there were trucks that unloaded many pontoons and the view was ruined. It is amusing to see walking pontoon but I would prefer without it.
